It is obvious the proprietors of this motel are sticklers for detail. The owners were away during our stay but the fill-in manager and her husband were welcoming and helpful. The rooms are absolutely spotless, beautifully decorated, and well-equipped. This is a great place to stay.

This motel has jacuzzi in the bath tub which is very nice. My children love it very much, and this has become one of the favorite motel during our 2 weeks vacation. The surrounding are very cozy, and the property itself is extremely clean. Outstanding.

The motel wasn't within walking distance of the town. Facilities in the hotel were basic but reasonable. Staff were friendly. We found the bathroom was small. The beds were a little uncomfortableThe spare tub outside.

Yes the room was clean and comfortable, but the highlight was the spa tub in our ensuite bathroom. For use with the spa tub were decanters containing high quality bubble bath, shampoo, shower gel, lotion and conditioner The manager/owner was quite helpful and friendly.

This was a wonderful find for me on Trip Advisor. I needed a one night stay to the south of Nelson and this motel was rated quite high and had a very reasonable price.

We only stayed for one night, but would have been very comfortable for many more. The room was very large and spacious, quiet, and had good kitchen and bathroom facilities. Car parking and location both excellent. Nice friendly staff too.

This is a lovely place in a handy location.

Thanks for the great review, we do have the best of both worlds, with being on the main road, but also being far enough back to not be affected by road noise. Also the location is not in the centre of town, but near the beach and on the road towards the Abel Tasman national Park.
